Nicking Analysis – by Calvin Carter
Kibbutznik is a sire-line descendant of the Northern Dancer Ancestral Herd. His damsire line descends from the Ancestral Herd of Damascus while Lady Capulet, the dam of EL Prado, is a descendant of the Royal Charger Ancestral Herd and Mooncoin, the second dam of Kibbutznik, is a descendant of the Mr. Prospector Ancestral Herd. Also, there are multiple strains of the Royal Charger and Native Dancer Ancestral Herds in the top and bottom of the five-generation pedigree.
EL Prado, the sire of Kibbutznik, had good success when bred to mares from the Ancestral Herd of Native Dancer and Royal Charger. Kibbutznik has multiple strains of the Native Dancer and Royal Charger Ancestral Herds throughout his five-generation pedigree, and, if he passes on the same genetic influence as his sire, then he also should do well when bred to mares from the Native Dancer Ancestral Herd – especially the herds of Mr. Prospector and Alydar. Kibbutznik should also do well when bred to mares from the Roberto sire line of the Royal Charger Ancestral Herd.
Mares by BAILJUMPER, the damsire of MEDAGLIA d’ORO, when bred to EL PRADO, show a fantastic AEI of 53.12. EL PRADO’S son, ARTIE SCHILLER, is bred on the nick of the Northern Dancer Ancestral Herd over the Ancestral Herd of Native Dancer. Nicking stats for mares by MAJESTIC LIGHT when bred to EL PRADO have a 19.12 AEI.
The nick of EL Prado with the Native Dancer Ancestral Herd has been very successful, producing 11 (37%) of his top 30 runners:Ratified, Artie Schiller, Borrego, Fort Prado, Chindi, Lord Admiral, James Street, Buffalo Man, Julies Prize, Lusty Latin and Cloakof Vagueness. Of those 11 runners, five (45%) are descendants of the Mr. Prospector Ancestral Herd: Ratified, Fort Prado, James Street, Julies Prize and Lusty Latin. Also, four of those 11 runners (36%) are descendants of the Alydar Ancestral Herd: Borrego, Chindi, Buffalo Man and Cloakof Vagueness.
EL Prado also had good success with mares from Ancestral Herd of Nasrullah and Kibbutznik should do well with those mares, too. Kibbutznik should also do well with mares from the Ancestral Herds of Damascus and Northern Dancer.
